I am interested in understanding the impact of climate change and humans on ecosystems across time. I study how climate and humans have impacted ecosystems over a short- (decades) and long-term scale (centuries and thousands of years) and their resiliency to disturbance. The information contributes with a paleoecological outlook into an ecological problem that is critical for understanding not only how tropical ecosystems responded to changes in climatic conditions and habitat transformation over time but also bear on modern issues of how both vegetation and human societies will respond to the intensification of extreme climatic events.
